The association holds several general meetings throughout the school year, which are free to members. Visitors are charged a nominal fee when the meeting includes a meal.

A program is planned for each meeting by the Executive Board and Directors, usually featuring guest speakers from the media, government, or other organizations whose activities have an impact on education and/or the public's perception of Long Island's public education institutions.

LISPRA provides a forum to polish professional skills, stay abreast of current issues, and obtain assistance in addressing a variety of subjects in one's own district.

The general meetings will fall on the second Tuesday of October, December, February and April. I will send you calendar invites for each one, but it will be a static link: They are all currently scheduled to be held virtually, and we will advise if/when that changes. If COVID-possible, we hope to hold our Annual Meeting in June, as well as some networking events.

We are also re-instituting the monthly LISPRA lunch time Zoom chats, for those that want to participate. Those will be held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 1-2pm, and a calendar invite will follow. The static link is:
